Searching in catalogs via Azure Search

To create the Azure Search service, you need to enter into the Azure portal and go to New | Data + Storage | Azure Search. Similar to other Azure services, you need to select:

  • A lowercase name for the public and global endpoint (.search.windows.net)
  • The resource group
  • The location where the service is deployed
  • The pricing tier

You pay for what you use. Azure Search can be classified as a NoSQL key/value store database, as it stores JSON objects in indexes for subsequent search and access. The features include:

  • The pricing is the expression of resources
  • Partitions, as the data is distributed to perform searches in parallel
  • Search units, as a virtual unit of computing
  • 25 GB and 15 million documents per partition
